Country Kutha

\Country Kuth-tha\
9 0


Essentially, a "stray dog." From the Hindi "Kutha" which means dog.

Any stray dog is called a Country kutha. Also applies to a dog of dubious parentage or any unrecognizable mongrel mix.

Country kuthas are most common in villages and bastis and have a distinct high pitched yowl that can be heard from even one km away. They also bark in chorus. If one starts, another one picks it up and they dont stop for at least half an hour.

Good for night security in villages areas. Bad for lone travelers fearful of their goolies.


Woman1: Ravi keeps adopting all these stray country kuthas. Some of them probably have rabies.
Woman2: Ravi IS a country kutha himself.
